The Project Management Institute (PMI®) is the world’s leading association for the project management profession. It administers a globally recognized, rigorous, education, and/or professional experience and examination-based professional credentialing program that maintains an ISO 9001 certification in Quality Management Systems.
Earning a professional credential through PMI means that one has:
Demonstrated the appropriate education and/or professional experience;
Passed a rigorous examination;
Agreed to abide by a professional code of conduct;
Committed to maintaining their active credential through meeting continuing certification requirements.
PMI professional credentials — available to members of the Institute and nonmembers alike — are widely recognized and accepted throughout the world as evidence of a proven level of education, knowledge and experience in project management.
As a professional project manager, development means more than improving one's own knowledge and skills. It means being committed to ensuring professional results for each project by applying the most current industry standards, enhancing project team skills, and advancing recognition of project management.
